cgsQuest, inc Completes Search for Vice President of Performance Solutions for Corporate Express Promotional Marketing

Lisle, IL, August 23, 2008 --( cgsQuest, inc., a boutique executive search firm, has successfully completed the search for a Vice President of Performance Solutions for the incentives business unit of Corporate Express Promotional Marketing. Located in St. Louis, MO, Corporate Express Promotional Marketing is one of the leading advertising specialty and promotional products companies in the U.S. Mark Peterman, formerly a Director with Maritz Motivation, accepted the position and joined the company in July.

According to Catherine Sutherland, President of cgsQuest, inc., "the search and selection process for this role was particularly challenging. We needed to identify an exceptional Vice President who offered a range of experience and skills, including in-depth incentive industry experience as well as, excellent general management, leadership, and sales skills for a growing piece of the business. We reached out to over 300 incentive industry executives throughout the United States. Mark brings all of that experience and more to CEPM. The client is thrilled that we found and pursued him, and that they were ultimately able to hire him.”

The CEPM client contacts were Jennifer Moehlmann, Director of Organizational Development and Dennis Multack, President. Mr. Multack said, “This search was especially difficult for us because we were looking for some unique requirements in an industry with a tight applicant pool. Cathy and her staff at cgsQuest worked tirelessly to find suitable candidates and not only presented a wide range of candidates, but found creative avenues for generating qualified candidates when an initial search of the incentive marketplace wasn’t providing us with what we needed. cgsQuest’s understanding of our business and thorough analysis of the role we are trying to fill makes them a terrific recruitment partner. This level of personal service is what makes them so valuable to our business.”
